20065 Clay Mills (Hargate) 15 May 1987

With the Burton-on-Trent's Bass Tower and the chimney of the Victorian Clay Mills Pumping Station visible on the left, 20065 passes Clay Mills (Hargate) on 15 May 1987 with 8D15 08:42 Bescot to Toton Old Bank departmental working. The brake van would be needed for the return working of a rake of spoil wagons. A loco and brake van do normally make for an interesting picture, but a single Class 20 in the sun was definitely worth a picture. Also, I particularly like the balanced composition formed by the line of concrete pipe supports in the field.
